Synopsis

Amazon.com
The six-CD R&B Box is impressively ambitious, arching as it does from the "race record" era to the day before disco. Jump blues, boogie, postwar vocal groups, shouters and honkers, early rock & roll, doo-wop, and myriad varieties of soul music all rear their heads here; while the selections may often seem obvious to longtime listeners, the set will certainly knock out anyone new to the history of these sounds. --Rickey Wright

R&B Lover's Dream!
kcristi | 04/08/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I purchased this box set two years ago and it has been in perpetual rotaion on my stereo ever since. It's a virtual history of Rythm and Blues, from the forties to the seventies, including many gems such as Etta James' "At Last," Big Mama Thornton's "Hound Dog," and many, many more. Many of the artists in this set I had never heard of before, and are now my favorites. Get ready to go to R&B school-you're gonna love every minute of it!"
